The World’s Most Beautiful Museums
“In poetically well built museums, formed from the heart’s compulsions, we are consoled not by finding in them old objects that we love, but by losing all sense of Time.” - Orhan Pamuk
In honor of International Museum Day, we assembled a list of our favorite museums around the world. Museums house the world’s treasures—be they artistic, scientific or historical—and in turn they are often designed to reflect or enhance the collections they host.

Train Stations Around the World

Today is a big anniversary for railroad fans: It’s the 144th anniversary of the completion of the US transcontinental railroad. The railroad facilitated travel from the east to the west coast of the United States.
Train stations have been around for over 200 years—ever since the United Kingdom constructed the very first structures in the early 19th century. Many of these early 19th century stations reflect the grandiose architecture popular at the time, while those built more recently are more likely to have simple, abstract designs.
To honor the history of these buildings, we gathered together a list of some of the most beautiful stations from around the world. For more photos of each building’s stunning architecture, visit the location pages below:
